Calathea Lancifolia

(5 customer reviews)


‘Rattlesnake Plant’

We do enjoy a good Calathea and this one might just be our favourite. It’s really unique due to it’s ruffled leaves. It’s also got a striking leaf pattern and a gorgeous purple underside. This one ‘sleeps’ at night and brings it’s leaves up just like the prayer plant. Will this be the ‘new’ prayer plant?

Availability: 3 in stock

Light : This lovely is low light tolerant. Partial shade will do her best. Just be careful to keep her out of direct sun. 

Water:  Keep the soil slightly moist. You never want to soil to dry out. Give it a thorough watering but make sure its not sitting in any water. Soggy soil can cause root rot. 

Humidity: Calatheas love humidity. You can group her with other plants, pop her in the bathroom or kitchen. You can also mist her. 

Temperature: Keep this lady warm. She will not thank you for a draught.  

Food:  Not to be fed in winter, but you could indulge your Calathea Lancifolia with some half strength fertiliser in the growing months. 

Toxicity: Yay! Calatheas are pet friendly.

Dimensions 14 × 50 cm

Yellow edges to leaves could be your plant not enjoying your tap water. You can let your water sit out overnight before watering to let the chlorine and fluoride evaporate.
